The Labyrinth Wiki Format Page will set out the guidelines for the standardized format expected to be used in all articles. It is important these guidelines are followed, as doing so will make the wiki consistent and easy to read.
What sort of articles are accepted?
Articles are welcome on any topic that is directly related to the film Labyrinth. This includes the film's characters and settings, as well as any material produced to accompany the film in the real world such as the soundtrack album and any other associated merchandise. Articles are also welcome on any individuals directly involved with the making of the film, and these are to be found in the Cast and Crew category.
Articles are also welcome on the manga sequel to the film, Return to Labyrinth, and contributors are invited to create pages pertaining to its characters and settings.
Articles that are not to be included in the wiki include pages on any other Henson projects, such as The Dark Crystal. This wiki will solely deal with Labyrinth, and while references to other projects are welcome if justified pages dedicated to them are not to be created under any circumstances. Pages on characters that only exist within the Labyrinth fandom should also be avoided (please see the section below on fandom).

A basic page is usually compromised of -
- An image to the top right of the page showing the character.
- Several brief sentences stating who the character is and their role in the series at the top of the page
- A section (if applicable) on the character's background to be titled Events Prior to the [Manga/Film]
- A section on the role they play in the narrative to be titled Role in the [Manga/Film].
For characters who appear in more than one piece of media or play a larger role, a complex page is required. For a major character such as Sarah, a page can involve many headings and subsections. A complex page can involve an Overview of the character that provides a broad picture of everything that is known about them from the sources available. An overview brings together the information featured elsewhere on a character's page in a condensed form, providing the reader with a
